Since last year (see the press-release posted by Larzen in the first post of this thread: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...26-a-9492.html)

But her work on HIV/AIDS is older - the trip to Malawi for example in 2005: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...05-a-4788.html

Isn't it winter in Norway?? Is she wearing sandals and a white summer skirt??

Her_Majesty 11-05-2007 12:58 PM

The outfit is a familiar one : She wore exactly the same combination in India (2006):

Even the necklace was the same. ;)

Anyway: She looked elegant! Bright colors look so nice on her! I'm always satisfied when I see MM wearing another color then black.

As you can read in the headline Princess MM isn't in Norway right now but in Nicaragua, which is in Central America. ;)

i thought the outfit looked familiar... :) what a great bag, though! don't think we saw it before. it's superb.

i hope we can see some videos of the visit, perhaps of mette marit talking with the press, since they will most probably be in english.

Viser sympati med aidsofre - kjendis.no points out the red "AIDs" support of Mette-Marit.

"The fact that this conference take place, demonstrate a strong wish to fight HIV and AIDS," said Mette-Marit.

Smilla 11-05-2007 05:52 PM

I know it is an unworthy thought - but for once she must have listened to the voice of a style assistant. Her hair looks lovely, her clothing is okay and even fits the occasion and she looks very pretty and happy. Lovely!

rominet09 11-05-2007 09:02 PM

She looks beautiful and relaxed... quite at ease I presume

I have to say that; beyond that lack (or fan) of fashion, there is an intelligent woman who knows her stuff. She has said that she's not a Barbie doll, and I can give you my word that this is correct.

And the speech she delivered in Managua proves just that. After being working with HIV positives and AIDS victims in parts of Asia myself, my eyes has been opened to this kind of lifestyle, and on 1 December I will hold my own speech marking the International Day of HIV and AIDS.

I know this may sounds political, but I just wanted you all to know that this woman, who happen to be an aquaintance of mine, is a great ambassador for this cause; and I am very proud of her. So yet again; during this visit to Nicaragua - please focus on the work she is doing, not the clothes she is wearing.
